About


Perfect Trine evolved from a set of flash cards that were meant to learn the basic astrological symbols, into a robust tool for learning astrology and doing tarot readings with playing cards. The Perfect Trine Blue and Gold is a poker deck that has been inspired by our studies of astrology and the tarot. In addition to playing our favorite card games, this deck of cards is full of "tells" that helped us learn the symbols, signs, and elements of astrology and brought our tarot readings into the realm of playing cards. 

 The back of the Blue and Gold edition is comprised of ten concentric rings, each ring containing a planet, the zodiac or zodiacs that are it’s home, the symbols of each planet and zodiac, and finally the rings are in the order of the planets speed from the center out.

 The court cards represent the twelve zodiac in each of their emanations. Emanations describe how a sign expresses it's inner nature. The kings being the first emanation signs express their inner selves with Liberty, the queens the second emanation signs express their inner nature with Modification, and the jacks are the third emanation signs and express their inner nature with Reserve.

 The tens have been assigned to the element for their suit. The tens function as the horseman of a tarot deck would. The association between the element and the suit on the tens is carried out through the rest of the deck. The sigils of the elements on each card are a constant subtle reminder of the element that is associated with each zodiac and planet. 

In lieu of traditional jokers, a key to the zodiac has been created. Each zodiac has their key word in the back ground overlaid by each zodiac's best and worst quality. When the cards are laid side by side one gets a nice visualization of the zodiacs as opposites. These have become our de-facto bookmarks at home.

The numbered cards, 1-9, have under the indices the decan shown by zodiac and planet. A decan is a 10 degree section of the sky, each Zodiac containing three decan. The meaning of the decan within it's zodiac is how one derives the meaning of the minor cards in an astrological tarot deck. By transferring the meaning of the minor tarot cards to the numbered cards of Perfect Trine the deck became an amazing tool for learning to do tarot readings with a poker deck. 

The order of the decan for this deck uses C.C. Zain’s The Sacred Tarot and Spiritual Astrology for it’s inspiration, these two books being Vol. VI and Vol. VII of C.C. Zain's 21 volume magnum opus on astrology, alchemy, and magic for the Brotherhood of Light Lessons.

The cards will be printed by the Expert Playing Card Company on their Classic card stock, a luxurious linen card stock. The inks used will be Pantone's new metallic ink library that runs brighter and more metallic looking. The tuck box will be done with a dark blue paper stock, and gold hot foil stamping. Please feel free to visit The Expert Playing Card Companies' gallery to get a feel for the quality and appearance of the inks, materials, and workmanship that will have been involved in creating this deck for you.   

Risks and challenges

We have created a few different decks of tarot card over the years but this will be the first time we are selling a deck. To ensure the smoothest execution we have chosen the Expert Playing Card Company to print the Gold and Blue edition and the Gambler's Warehouse to handle the fulfillment of all of the orders. The true date of delivery hinges upon the success of the fundraiser itself, the shipping methods available at certain quantities vary.

The images above are of a mock deck and the digital art that the prints will be created from.
